Sweet And Intoxicating And With A Spark Ready To Catch Fire. Everybody Seems To Be On The Same Page And The Show Is Captured In The Friendly Confines Of The Fox By The Goddess Of Sound With The Magical Ear. Betty Cantor Jackson. One Wonders What A Betty Board Of The Previous Night In Nashville Would Do To Us. I Hate To Rate, Yet For The Show A 4. For The Sound Quality Despite Edits A 5. Always Round Off Too The High Number Sooooo....

Try to see a little furthur..
This sounds pretty good to me!
Whatever one thinks of Keith not being prominent in the mix at this late date in his time on earth and with the band -at a minimum he does no damage to the Grateful Dead's sound. This is very easy on my ears!
I like the Jerry song selections in the 1st set and this is where he plays the ballads as there are none from him in the 2nd set.
Weir -talking Alligators and a moat.
Passenger has to be one of the most underrated tunes
Another rockin version here!
Great 2nd set tune selection (Over sized pre-drums)
MIRACLE is a perfect addition to what had become a workhorse combo.
Ramble On is very nice and will not often be seen in the Second Set in the later years.
Heart of Me-pretty good use of Donna Jean's talent.
Much good vibes from Donna
Give me Shakedown post drums anytime.

Dig a little deeper
I was at this show, 4th row, and have listened to it hundreds of times. You are overlooking some of the sweetest playing around. The Peggy-O is one of my all time favorites. The jam in Music Never Stopped is also tremendous, really precise jamming. The transition from Miracle into Bertha is the tastiest on record, and the tease of Morning Dew just before Shakedown is worth listening for.

Whatever happened to being able to download shows? This is balderdash, and the end of the best download site around. Too bad.

Granted, this is from the mostly subpar late 1978 period, so don't expect anything earth shattering here. But since Keith Godchaux was barely a musical factor at this point, Weir REALLY steps out on Eyes Of The World, briefly reclaiming the musical space he lost in 1971. Though he doesn't step headlong into the abyss by taking a lead, his harmonic work coupled with Jerry's rapid stylings characteristic of the period make this a noteworthy performance.

patch in Eyes
At about the 8 minute mark amidst the last verse in Eyes, this recording goes from SBD to a muted, distant AUD. By 8:21, returns to SBD, and continues til the end (11:28). This is a decent Eyes, Weir tends to outshine Garcia on it, though JG comes up with a some new, interesting sounds near the end.
